Help uterine fibroid patients find you

Let your patients know that board-certified interventional radiologists can deliver minimally invasive treatments with less risk, less pain and less recovery time than traditional surgery. With SIR's Doctor Finder, the most comprehensive database of interventional radiologists practicing in the United States and internationally, they can search based on expertise (uterine fibroid treatments), geographic location or by state or country.

Update your  Doctor Finder profile today to ensure that UFE it is listed as one of your areas of expertise.

Get UFE MRIs covered

Sometimes carriers deny reimbursement for specific treatments. SIR developed coverage letter templates to help you ensure your patient has access to the care she needs. Find a coverage letter template for MRI imaging of the uterus prior to UFE here.
